Family friends were walking down a street, the father with the baby in his arms, when a sheet of ice fell off a building's roof and hit them. Dad was OK but the baby was killed. They made the very painful decision to donate the baby's organs and a number of other people are alive because of their gift.
And my first cousin, once removed, is alive today because of a liver transplant.
I've signed my organ donation card but I've had cancer so I'm not sure whether or not they'll use my organs, if the time comes.
